Umformung – The Transformation

The film is a story of intense dimensions with two parallel stories: One, that of a Buddhist monk in a search for his inner truths that takes him away from the abode of his guru in an idyllic monastery in the mountains and brings him face-to-face with prostitutes in a city brothel. His thoughts about life and enlightenment undergo a complete transformation.

Simultaneously, there is a female city builder whose belief in life is all about power, greed, and manipulation; and she does this with a vengeance. She has a past that compels her to lead a life of power; but that past turns out to be something else with devastating consequences.
